Addressing Constrained-Off Payments for Ontario Interties

​In response to a recommendation by the Market Surveillance Panel (MSP), the IESO is seeking to eliminate constrained-off payments for all Ontario interconnections. In its most recent report, the MSP outlined specific evidence that these payments do not provide commensurate value to the market and have the potential to incent inefficient behaviour resulting in unnecessary costs for Ontario consumers.

This stakeholder engagement initiative will present an overview of the issue, provide analysis and invite discussion from stakeholders as the IESO completes its understanding of any impacts that arise as a result of eliminating these payments.

All interested stakeholders are invited to participate in this engagement.
